CRS Young Scientists are a varied group of people. They are typically students and early career scientists in academia or industry under the age of 40 years, or can be other scientists with less than five years’ experience in the science, technology, and innovation of delivery of bioactives.
Despite these differences they share four things in common:
- A fascination for challenges and achievements in the world of innovative delivery
- A thirst to broaden their scientific knowledge in the area
- A desire to build their career and develop professionally
- A need to network with fellow Young Scientists and other colleagues
The Young Scientist Committee and its sub-committee, the Young Scientist Mentor Protégé Subcommittee, are dedicated to developing exciting events and putting initiatives in motion that are tailored to meet the needs of Young Scientists within the CRS.
